Keeping up with Shaw's Tavern

I recently became a fan of Shaw's Tavern on Facebook (you can too here).  It's been fascinating to follow the establishment's progress toward  opening this summer, with photo updates of construction and comments from the owners.  Today, Shaw's Tavern released its Summer 2011 menu, which sounds pretty fantastic:
